So bummed @Brooklyn99FOX is being cancelled! But I am loving seeing all of these great posts about how important (& hilarious) the show is. I want to publish books just like it—joyous, culturally relevant, edifying, & respectful to its audience. #RenewBrooklyn99 #mswl

Gargoyles released 23 years ago! Did you watch this?

GARGOYLES was 1 of the influential cartoons of my childhood. I loved the mix of myth, magic, & science. Send me this in book form pls! #mswl

Any book, genre, or comp I've ever asked for on twitter (or on the MSWL site) but with #ownvoices please.

Replying to @ChrisCanWrite

Surprised by how little submissions I get from agents w/ Latinx authors/main characters. You've got a guy on the inside, let me help 😁 #mswl

My 1st #mswl tweet of the day. Book that fits this description: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, #ShePersisted.”

Funny picture books in general--even better if there are nods to parents--like books by Mac Barnett, Jory John, Peter Brown & the like #mswl

Perhaps a bit too much enthusiasm in my last tweet. You might not know it, but I'm interested in picture books too #mswl

.@jltemperly I'd like to buy it! Love magical adventures taking place in our own backyards, like Spiderwick--another one of my faves. #mswl

YA magical realism with mystery and a dark side like Nova Ren Suma's THE WALLS AROUND US or Laura Ruby's BONE GAP. #MSWL

Chris Hernandez @ChrisMakesBooks · 30 Jun 2016

YA Master of None. Cleverly written about hard truths of what it's like to date as a teen but also some light @ the end of the tunnel #mswl

Middle grade versions of Fresh Off the Boat and Blackish. #mswl
